I am 10 measely points from a full ride, don't have the cash to retake SAT

<p>I should clarify that I gave already used up both of the slotted fee waivers for the SAT. My scores were as follows:</p>

<li><p>30 points short of a full ride to my desired college. </p></li>
<li><p>10 points short. </p></li>

<p>As one would imagine, the best course of action would be to keep taking the SAT until I achieve my desired minimum score. However, I am unemployed and strapped for cash.</p>

<p>I would desperately like to know if there is any way I can take the test again at little or no cost. Are there any corporate sponsorships or oraganizations that could help me pay the $50?</p>

<p>The amount of money needed to retake the test could easily be earned. We are not talking tuition, we are talking a test fee. How about babysitting? Or tutoring? I have no idea where you are from, but raking leaves, mowing lawns, shoveling snow might be options also. Where there's a will, there's a way!</p>

<p>I agree with fishy mom, "where there's a will, there's a way" but sometimes older people dont understand that it is hard to get a job , people wont pay you more than 5 dollas for raking leaves ... Have you tried asking your parents and see if they can help you? maybe a neighbor or friend could lend you the money. Ask your counselor, some school districts pay SAT fees for certain students.
Good luck!</p>

<p>I know that in my county, the kids that have free and reduced lunch get a free SAT test, I think, 3 times.</p>

<p>^ You only get 2 waivers for it, and he said he already used them. That's done by the collegeboard, not the schoolboard.</p>

<p>I faced a similar problem and luckily I was able to have mine paid for with my birthday money, but you should try talking to a guidance counselor since mine was willing to pay for mine if I couldn't come up with the money.</p>

<p>I would agree with Dnerd; talk to your guidance office. They're there to help you - they'll find a way to pay for it. They might even pay for it themselves - you're so close to the full ride, and they want to see you succeed; if it costs $50 to do so, I'm sure they will do it.</p>

<p>dont feed the troll</p>
